Pays Visit to Synagogue;
Vows to Uphold Rights of All Citizens

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

PARIS—President Habib Bourgui-
ba of Tunisia chose one of the
oldest synagogues in the world—
that on the Tunisian island of
Djerba—as the site for a state-
ment that his re-
gime sought to
protect the relig-
ious rights of all
Tunisians.
The visit, made
at the president's
request, was be-
lieved .to be the
first to Jewish
house of worship
by a modern
Arab ruler. Mem-
bers of the Jew-
ish communities
of Tunis and
Djerba, headed Bourguiba
by Tunisian Chief Rabbi Mordecia
Cohen, were present to receive
President Bourguiba.
Chief Rabbi Cohen presented to
the president a nine-inch gold
model of Aye Talah. At the syna-
gogue entrance, a girl presented
him with a bouquet. The president
went inside and took his seat in
the tebah, a small enclosure of
latticed wooden walls from which
the Tora is read.
Chief Rabbi Cohen said in a
sermon that when God made
rulers of nations, he endowed
them with wisdom and that the
members of the 25-centuries old
Jewish community of Djerba en-
joyed liberty. He ended with a
prayer for the Tunisian leader.
In his response, the president
said that no distinction was made
in Tunisia between Jews and Mos-
lems who were "all Tunisians."
--5-1e said the task of his regime
as . "to
. help all Tunisians to
:.paintam their religion and that all
we ask in return is sincerity in

Rise in Hate Propaganda
Noted on Aussie Campus

SYDNEY, Australia (JTA) —
The public relations committee of
the Jewish Board of Deputies has
been asked to take action against
anti-Jewish and anti-Israel propa-
ganda at universities here which
have reached serious proportions
during recent weeks.
A representative of the board
said that there was increased ac-
tivity in printing anti-Semitic pro-
paganda in Sydney. The spokesman
also warned the community against
a small youth group going around
among the Jewish community col-
lecting money for a so-called "pro-
tective society."
The community was warned not
to give aid to this group but to
contact the board of deputies, if
approached by them.

words and devotion in actions.
The synagogue reputedly was
founded by Jews said to have
come from Babylon. The two vil-
lages on the island—Hara Srira
and Hara Kbirra—have kept the
Jewish traditions through the cen-
turies. All Djerba Jews speak
Hebrew, the men are all bearded
and lament each year the destruc-
tion of the Temple of Jerusalem.
It was reported that Tunisian
Jews, all of whom have families
in France, continue to emigrate.
The Tunisian regime allows them
to go.
